Conserving the Barberry Carpet moth

The conservation history of the Barberry Carpet Moth Pareulype berberata began in 1970, when the only known surviving British population of this previously widespread insect was threatened by a road-building scheme. Over the years, there has been a variety of efforts to safeguard this particular Suffolk population, including the creation of a new site and several establishment attempts using individuals bred in captivity for the purpose.
